Countdown to Australia: 3 weeks.

We’re moving to Australia on November 28, precisely three weeks from now. Every week leading up to that day (and on the day itself… providing the time allows for it) I’m gonna be releasing a short update video to my Vlog Channel. Here is the first. (Yes, it’s Tuesday now, I know. This post should’ve …

Scotty the Cat, episode 2

Currently Scotty is crouched on my bed, frightened out of his tiny mind. It is of course Bonfire Night/Guy Fawkes Night, and everyone who’s anyone (else) in the neighbourhood is currently setting off fireworks to celebrate the arrest of a man who 406 years ago today didn’t blow up the Houses of Parliament. I never …

Our house finally sold

This should’ve gone up yesterday, but someone apparently stole the internet for the whole area.

What a week.

This week has been pretty hectic. That is, compared to my usual weekly routine of computer computer food computer sleep, it’s been pretty jam-packed with activity.

Seeing these guys live tomorrow

Am mighty excited. 😀

New track on SoundCloud! (Random solo)

I got bored one day and decided to record myself doing some crazy soloing with my keyboard. My skill with this kind of thing is something I’ve been working at for a while, and you can hear a few hiccups every now and then in my performance, but what you’re hearing is a 100% live …
